Electricity 101

  1. Anode
    positive electrode
  2. Cathode
    negative charged electrode
  3. Unipolar Pacing
    • Pacemaker is the anode
    • large antenna
  4. Bipolar Pacing
    • Both electrodes in heart
    • small antenna
  5. Capacitor
    stores electrical charge
  6. Ohm's Law
    V=I * R

    voltage= current/resistance

    hose analogy
  7. why is lead impedance important?
    measure integrity of lead
  8. Insulation Break?
    Current escaping ....lead impedance down
  9. Lead Fracture
    Lead impendance goes up
